Pride and Prescience

Автор: Bebris Carrie

Pride and Prescience embroils the joyous newlyweds from Pride & Prejudice in a mystery involving one of their wedding guests, the lovely Caroline Bingley, who is engaged to marry a rich and charismatic American. Unfortunately this windswept courtship is marred by many strange events such as nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems to be the target of a sinister plot, with only the Darcys recognizing the danger. The Austen genre of regency romances mixes with the gothic unearthly threats of Radcliffe and the Brontes where sinister forces are afoot and the Darcys must get to the bottom before the blushing bride descends into madness or worse.

Hip Hop — Bring The Noise

Автор: Kulkarni Neil

Bring the Noise expands the best-selling Stories Behind the Songs series to include musical genres. Rap — the most powerful and overtly political music ever — is the subject of this fascinating book. Rappers always have a lot of words, but what are they really talking about? This book examines over fifty of the greatest hip hop songs ever recorded, from the innocent, fun-loving classics of the founding fathers (‘Rapper’s Delight’ — The Sugar Hill Gang) through Gangsta-rapping anti-authoritarianism (‘F**k the Police’ — N.W.A.) and bad-boy sexism (‘Gangster of Love’ — Geto Boys) to the multiplatinum sellers of the twenty-first century (‘Stan’ — Eminem).

Blood of Dragons

Автор: Hobb Robin

The final instalment of Robin Hobb’s Sunday Times best-selling series The Rain Wild Chronicles. Dragon blood and scales, dragon liver and eyes and teeth. All required ingredients for medicines with near-miraculous healing powers. The legendary blue dragon Tintaglia is dying of wounds inflicted by hunters sent by the Duke of Chalced, who meanwhile preserves his dwindling life by consuming the blood of the dragon’s poet Selden Vestrit. If Tintaglia perishes, her ancestral memories will die with her. And the dragons in the ancient city of Kelsingra will lose the secret knowledge they need to survive. Their keepers immerse themselves in the dangerously addictive memory-stone records of the city in the hope of recovering the Elderling magic that once allowed humans and dragons to co-exist. In doing so they risk losing their own identities, even their lives. And danger threatens from beyond the city, too. For war is coming: war between dragonkind and those who would destroy them.
